This is the 2014 edition of the popular series, The Gay Agenda. It includes all up to date information about how to achieve legal equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. If you have not yet read any of the Gay Agenda books, this is the time! If you have read the prior editions go directly to Part IV about what to do in 2014. Find answers to questions such as:

  • What are the most important actions we can take in 2014? (see eleven actions on chapter 53)
     
  • Why continue the fight, since it is going to happen anyway? (see chapter 52)
     
  • Should I give directly to candidates or entities such as the Democratic National Committee? (chapter 55)
     
  • Has President Obama delivered on being a fierce advocate? (see chapter 54)
     
  • Is there full equality for LGBT people in any state? (see chapter 56)
     
  • Is the Democratic Party doing enough for equality? (see chapter 56)
     
  • Isn't it true that "politics is the art of the possible"? (see chapter 44)
     
  • To win, shouldn't we play a game of insiders and outsiders? (see chapter 43)
     
  • What's missing for full equality in my state? (see chapters 56 and 57)
     
  • Is anybody keeping real score about how far we are in reaching equality? (see chapter 29)
     
  • Who has taken creative actions to foster LGBT equality? (see chapter 61)
     
  • How can I be more effective as an activist? (see chapter 63)
     
  • Is it there a full declaration of principles for achieving full equality? (see chapter 31)
     
  • Has anyone written a comprehensive bill for full equality? (see chapter 30)

Many more topics are addressed. Check the table of contents below. This book is updated yearly and it is divided into four parts:

  • Part I describes what LGBT means and the arguments used to deny equal treatment under the law to this group of people.
  • Part II shows what the gay agenda is in detail, including the goals to be achieved.
  • Part III describes the different paths available to achieve equality.
  • Part IV details specific actions you can take in 2014 to achieve legal equality for the LGBT community.
  • Finally, the epilogue describes the ultimate goal, beyond legal equality.

The book has three main characteristics:

  • Very comprehensive guide to LGBT equality
     
  • Very easy to read (270 pages divided into 65 very-focused chapters)
